Why we hate to love Trump

August 17, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

We are all fascinated by Donald Trump, whether we love him or hate him. Every hour of every day someone is talking about Trump on TV or the radio. My personal assessment is that no one understands why he does what he does or says what he says. There wasn’t anything normal about his primary [&hellip...

Thanks for dedication with Senior Olympics

August 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Here we are, weeks have gone by, not a word as to the job that Sean Davis did the past few years managing the Senior Olympics. Needless to say, this year was an outstanding event. The best part, his family is well aware as to the job that he did. I do...

Biblical prophecies disputed in letters

August 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In recent weeks, we have been seeing letters to the editor bashing Christianity. I cannot answer all the issues they raised in a letter of reasonable length. I will deal with the remaining questions in a later letter. We have seen a pattern of people avoiding...

Democrats have been bad for the economy

August 15, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Some Democrats shouted “black lives matter” at their convention when someone called for a moment of silence for a murdered policeman, and others yelled “no more war” as a Medal of Honor recipient spoke. No one tried to stop them, and our flag wasn’t...

The same old tired rhetoric about guns

August 15, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

It’s presidential election season again, and the conservatives are trotting out the same tired old tropes. The Democrats are coming for our guns! This has been going on for at least 25 years. The reasoning seems to be that everybody better hurry up and buy...

City pays outsider instead of a local

August 4, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In reading the RDR headline of July 28, the Keller, Texas regime has come to an end. It never does cease to amaze me what the city of Roswell and the Roswell Independent School District go through to hire the big dogs. Spend the dough to advertise all over...

Create a citizens committee for pool

August 4, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The Roswell City Council’s decision to decommission the pool and the circumstances around it are unacceptable. Why did you do it this way? Why in the name of all that’s holy did you not wait until the end of summer to do this? Of course you couldn’t...

Like Patton, Trump has more character

August 3, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Yeah he’s crass and brash like, hmm, maybe George Patton, and he has the ego and bluster of another New Yorker, one Theodore Roosevelt, and the entrepreneurial spirit of Andrew Carnegie. No, I am not saying he is of the same caliber of those great...

Solve state financial woes via legalization

August 3, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

Once again, New Mexico is facing a massive budget shortfall, and once again Republicans who are responsible for our welfare — in particular, our governor — refuse to acknowledge the obvious: legalized marijuana is a taxable product. In 2015, Colorado...

Put a roof on the proposed pool

August 2, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In-or-Out? The new pool and recreational center proposal is moving in a forward direction. It appears to me that there will only be a single bond issue to cover both facilities as a recreational complex at Cielo Grande. A yes-vote for one is a yes-vote for...
